Helpful hints and tips
Sorting out the laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on each garment label and
the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Sort the laundry
as follows: whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens.
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites may
lose their «whiteness» in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they should
therefore be washed separately the first time.
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks and
poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or
detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie them
up in a bag or net.
Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to
washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water. For dried stains,
soak overnight in water with a special detergent then rub
in the soap and water.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover, lay
the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain; treat several
times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with the fingertips
and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a rust removing
product used cold. Be careful with rust stains which are
not recent since the cellulose structure will already have
been damaged and the fabric tends to hole.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites and fast
coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast
coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone1), lay the
garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains
with methylated spirits. Treat any residual marks with
bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat with
acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any residual marks
with bleach.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
9
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the fabric first
with acetone1), then with acetic acid; treat any residual
marks on white fabrics with bleach and then rinse thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits
or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the choice of detergent and use of the correct quantities to avoid waste and
protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents contain substances
which, in large quantities, can upset the delicate balance
of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type of fabric
(delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the colour, washing
temperature and degree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine detergents may
be used in this appliance:
• powder detergents for all types of fabric
• powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C max) and
woollens
• liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash
programmes (60°C max) for all types of fabric, or special for woollens only.
The detergent and any additives must be placed in the appropriate compartments of the dispenser drawer before
starting the wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme without prewash
must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation system which
allows an optimal use of the concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on
quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark in
the detergent dispenser drawer.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the type
of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and hardness of the
water used.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
• you are washing a small load
• the laundry is lightly soiled
• large amounts of foam form during washing.
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in so-called “degrees” of
hardness. Information on hardness of the water in your
area can be obtained from the relevant water supply company, or from your local authority. If the water hardness
degree is medium or high we suggest you to add a water
softener following always the manufacturer’s instructions.
When the degree of hardness is soft, readjust the quantity
of the detergent.

Care and cleaning
The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good idea
to periodically use a water softening powder in the machine. Do this separately from any laundry washing, and
according to the softening powder manufacturer's instructions. This will help to prevent the formation of lime deposits.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and
water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer
should be cleaned regularly.

If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to empty
out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down;
• open the pump door;
• place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the
emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its
cap. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl.
When the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose.
Empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops
flowing out;
• clean the pump if necessary as previously described;
• replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after
having plugged it;
• screw the pump cover again and close the door.
Important! Every time you drain the water through the
emergency emptying hose you must pour 2 litres of water
into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer
and then run the drain programme. This will activate the
ECO Valve device avoiding that part of the detergent
remains unused at next washing.

16
Problem
Possible cause/Solution
There is water on the floor:
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates too much foam) has been
used.
• Reduce the detergent quantity or use another one.
Check whether there are any leaks from one of the inlet hose fittings. It is not
always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose; check to see if it is
damp.
• Check the water inlet hose connection.
The drain or inlet hose is damaged.
• Replace it with a new one.
The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not been replaced or the filter
has not been properly screwed in after cleaning action.
• Refit the cap on the emergency emptying hose or screw the filter fully in.
Unsatisfactory washing results:
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used.
• Increase the detergent quantity or use another one.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.
• Use commercial products to treat the stubborn stains.
The correct temperature was not selected.
• Check if you have selected the correct temperature.
Excessive laundry load.
• Reduce the laundry load.
The door will not open:
The programme is still running.
• Wait the end of washing cycle.
The door lock has not been released.
• Wait a few minutes before opening the door.
There is water in the drum.
• Select drain or spin programme to empty out the water.
The machine vibrates is noisy:
The transit bolts and packing have not been removed.
• Check the correct installation of the appliance.
The support feet have not been adjusted
• Check the correct levelling of the appliance.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
17
Problem
Possible cause/Solution
Spinning starts late or the machine
does not spin:
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the laundry is
not evenly distributed in the drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse rotation of the drum. This may happen several times before the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume. If, after 10 minutes, the laundry is still
not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme.
• Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
• Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning
programme.
The machine makes an unusual
noise:
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures a softer start and
more even distribution of the laundry in the drum when spinning, as well as
increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically using very
little water without affecting performance.

water tap. Set the hose correctly by loosening the ring
nut. After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten
the ring nut again to prevent leaks.
Caution! The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it
is too short and you do not wish to move the tap,
you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially
designed for this type of use.
Warning! Installation should comply with local
water authority and building regulations’
requirements.
The appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.
A minimum water pressure of 0.05 MPa (0.5 bar) is
required for safe operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct from
the rising mains, you may be able to operate the appliance
from your cold water storage system.
There should be a minimum vertical distance of 5.02 m
(16.5 ft) between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of
the water storage tank.
Place the drain hose into your standpipe, which should
have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm thus
ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose
and standpipe.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top
of the standpipe is no more than 90 cm (35.4'') and no
less than 60 cm (23.6'') above floor level.

Ecological hints
• Normally soiled laundry may be washed without prewashing in order to save detergent, water and time (the
environment is protected too!).
• The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling
can be removed; the laundry can then be washed at a
lower temperature.
• Measure out detergent according to the water hardness, the degree of soiling and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
To save water, energy and to help protect the environment,
we recommend that you follow these tips:
